Arlington Martin duo racks up 300 yards on ground in tight win over Flower Mound
Flower Mound QB throws for 433 yards, 5 touchdowns in loss
FLOWER MOUND — While Flower Mound was determined to pass early and often against Arlington Martin on Friday night, the visiting Warriors, especially Cameron Williams and Kyle Hicks, had no problem keeping things on the ground.
Williams and Hicks combined to rush for 308 yards and three scores, leading Martin to a 56-41 victory over Flower Mound.
Marshall Williams threw 62 times for the Jaguars, completing 28 passes for 433 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.
The game-winning score came with four minutes left in the third quarter. Steven Amoako picked off Marshall Williams and walked in untouched from 20 yards out, making the score 42-27.
The play was a back-breaker because it came seven seconds after Hicks, who finished with 195 rushing yards, scored on a 24-yard run, his second touchdown of the night.
Martin (3-0) defensive end Devonte Fields paced the defense with two interceptions. Fields, who has orally committed to TCU, looked like a defensive back, dropping back into coverage and returning one pick for 70 yards for the game’s first score.
Regan Luce had two receiving touchdowns for Martin, catching two of Brodie Lambert’s three touchdown passes.
Marshall Williams and Brendon Ianiero were a popular scoring combination in the first quarter for Flower Mound (1-2).
Ianiero scored on a 58-yard catch less than two minutes into the game and then again on a 69-yarder about five minutes later.
However, the combo failed to get on the same page the rest of the way and the Jaguars offense suffered.
